The meeting comes at a time when the world is divided over the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine. India and China have refrained from condemning Russia’s actions in Ukraine citing historic ties. Despite their identical diplomatic stand on Russia, New Delhi and Beijing have been caught in a months-long impasse along the Line of Actual Control (LAC). Despite military-to-military engagement and several rounds of diplomatic talks, the two sides have not been able to break the deadlock along the LAC.
